Alisia Casper – INVISIBALLS: Unreal Solidarity

Saturday, 31 August 2019 from 12:00-15:00

‘Unreal Solidarity: finding support and encouragement in unlikely places’

An afternoon session of kids, cake, creating & conversing. Bring your own art materials (although there will be some made available if you don’t have any!), children or familiars and doodle your imaginary friends, invisible allies, spirit animals or fairy godmothers among friends old and new.

INVISIBALLS – is an exhibition and series of events aiming to make the invisible visible. My strongest connection to the condition of invisibility is personal & physical, and comes from my experience of living with Chronic Illness. There are many fine threads that wrap & wind & pull me into invisibility- and they wrap and wind & pull at you too… within the body and without the body, all around us constantly the machinations of society & its politics embrace, tangle and thrive in the rich matter of Denial- humankind’s most daily & brutal way to vanishment. The refusal to see, to listen, to accept. It is a devastating tool of destruction. Denial; large & small; individual & all; the entirety of life on earth is moved, emptied, and forever hit by it.

THE ARTIST – I am Alisia Casper & I make art and music and video, and I write words; poems perhaps. I illustrate intuitively by many means the inarticulate mess of my mind. I also make a zine called ‘Chroniczine’ that acts as therapy for me and as a bridge from the invisible to the visible. I want to make the unaware aware, and to allow those who feel alone with their pain a new connection, a togetherness, & the brightening possibility of change. I live with fibromyalgia, endometriosis, anxiety and chronic migraine- and my beautiful little family. My main interests are; making & finding interest- and feeling & finding hope, love, and kindness.

Exhibition runs from 23rd August – 13th September 2019
